  1. 1. Building muscle : a translation of training adaptation

    Author : Niklas Boman; Michael Svensson; Jonas Burén; Henrik Antti; Eva Jansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Training; adaptation; muscle; human; hypertrophy; testosterone; fysiologi; Physiology;

    Abstract : Training is preparation for what is expected to come through utilization of the plastic and resistive features of nature, known as adaptation. As such, training in humans may have a number of desired goals. These are typically related to sports performance or education. Whatever the goal, a plan needs to be made for reaching it. READ MORE

  2. 2. Exercise-induced muscle soreness : a qualitative and quantitative study of human muscle morphology and function

    Author : Jan Fridén; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human; exercise; exertion; eccentric contractions; muscles; muscle strength; muscle soreness; fibre types; myofibrils; muscle proteins; histocy to chemistry; ultrastructure; stereology;

    Abstract : Exercise-induced muscle soreness is characterized by stiffness, tenderness and pain during active movements and weakness of the affected musculature the days after unusually or particularly heavy work. The most pronounced subjective symptoms do not arise immediately but rather between a couple of hours to some days after the exercise (a delayed-onset of muscle soreness), the intensity of pain is greatest about 48 hours after the work.

  3. 3. Chronic tension-type headache. Treatment with acupuncture, physical training and relaxation training

    Author : Elisabeth Söderberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : chronic tension-type headache; acupuncture; physical; training; relaxation training; muscle tenderness; CNS-related symptoms; symptom characteristics;

    Abstract : The overall aim of this thesis was to compare the effect of acupuncture, physical training and relaxation training on chronic tension-type headache (CTTH) and related symptoms through measurements of headache intensity, headache frequency, symptom characteristics associated with daily headache, muscle tenderness and subjective well-being. There are four studies that underpin this thesis: In study 2 and 4, the study cohort comprised 90 consecutive patients with CTTH. READ MORE

  4. 4. Strenght training and anabolic steroids : a comparative study of the trapezius, a shoulder muscle and the vastus lateralis, a thigh muscle, of strength trained athletes

    Author : Anders Eriksson; Bengt Saltin; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : strength training; anabolic steroids; vastus lateralis; trapezius; enzymehistochemistry; immunohistochemistry; muscle fiber; myonuclei; satellite cell; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Strength training is widely used to increase performance in sports with high physical demands. The use of drugs such as anabolic steroids among athletes is a wellknown phenomenon, and the effects of these drugs on physical performance documented. READ MORE

  5. 5. Heat shock proteins in exercised human skeletal muscle

    Author : Mattias Folkesson; Fawzi Kadi; Britta Wåhlin-Larsson; Robert Kruse; Barbara Wessner; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Endurance training; Resistance training; Muscle Fibre Type; Electrical Pulse Stimulation; Muscle Hypertrophy;

    Abstract : Exercise is considered as an important stressor accompanied by concerted molecular and cellular changes leading to adaptations at the level of skeletal muscle size and function. An important protein family produced by cells in response to stressful conditions is the heat shock proteins (HSPs). READ MORE
